Inspired by a picture of the mayor of San Juan Puerto Rico who after the island was flooded by Hurricane Maria paddled an inflatable raft around the town while shining a flashlight onto survivors. Also inspired by nature shows like Wild Kingdom where animals are rescued from natural disasters.

What it does

Game starts, clouds appear, objects whirl across the room. Using the 3d audio effects from Magic Leap, the characters make sounds in locations throughout the space. Hand gestures to paddle raft, move and hold flashlight, handle rescue equipment in a variety of disaster scenarios. As people and animals are reunited in the raft or leave the scene with no rescue, points accrue.
